Rocking chair made to measure with high backrest
- Reference: F-ROCK-POINT-HAUT-MDF
The custom-made rocking chair is recommended to relieve back pain. While sitting, the muscles of the lower back are stimulated by the rocking movement.
In addition, thanks to its custom-made construction, the seat depth is proportional to the length of your femur. This means that you are seated at the bottom of the chair with your back firmly in place.
When ordering, you can simply indicate one of the 6 sizes available (quick mode), or indicate the exact dimensions that correspond to your morphology (a little longer but more precise).
A rocking chair made from your measurements
The benefits of a seat made by taking into account your measurements are multiple:
- a correct seat depth allows the back to come to rest well against the backrest, without the cushion compressing the calf
- if you are small in stature an adapted seat height is essential so that you can swing safely
- on the other hand if you are large in stature the combination of the adapted depth and height guarantees your comfort
Precision design and manufacture, in France
So that manufacturing can be launched from your measurements a unique plan is drawn up. Then the data is sent to a laser cutting machine accurate to 1/10 of a mm.
The manufacture of your rocking chair is carried out in our workshops in France from French hardwood fibreboard.
The foam of the Bultex cushions and the manufacture of the cushions are also French products.
You can choose between 6 standard sizes and custom-made. We recommend the latter option.

A rocking chair was prescribed by physician Janet Travell in 1955 to John F. Kennedy, when he was a junior senator from Massachusetts. He was suffering from persistent back problems due to a war injury. Physician Janet Travell prescribed swimming and the use of a rocking chair as therapy to relieve his pain. She believed that a rocking chair relieved tension in the lower back by moving, contracting and relaxing the muscles.
As president, he loved the rocker so much that his aides brought it on Air Force One when he traveled around the country and the world. He bought more rockers for Camp David and the Kennedys' estates in Palm Beach, Florida and Hyannis Port, Massachusetts. Kennedy also gave dozens of these chairs to friends and heads of state.
also many people experience a sense of relaxation from the rocking sensation, not unlike that of the cradle. In addition, various studies suggest that rocking facilitates falling asleep, increases deep slow wave sleep (so-called "restorative sleep", associated with the memory properties of sleep), and improves memory in adults.1 - 2
